Ecocarrier HY3 fuel cell
This fuel cell converts 154 kWh energy stored in hydrogen into 250km range. But to produce and compress the hydrogen by electrolysis
are minimal 186 kWh required. This makes 75 kWh / 100 km. About 4 times the consumption expected at an electric only version.
Where will hydrogen as a storage medium determine our energy future and where will the hydrogen technology fail by more suitable methods?

Directory over all our reports and comments about the hydrogen fuel cell technology in the field of mobility
Fair report from the industrial fair in Hannover, renewable energy and environment friendly mobility.
Isle of man electric motorcycle race 2009
This electric scooter is filed as the 24th participant of the open class. The race will take place June 12th. The 60.72 km distance has to be managed in 50 minutes.
Innoscooter wheel hub engine and controller
The controller has much more surface to distribute the heat. The new wheel hub engine should have 6 kW for 90 km/h top speed.
EWE Karmann electric car
Only a model on the Hannover fair. But it is a very important development. The estimation is alone for Germany 128 TWh (PEGE 2008) to 180 TWh (PEGE 1992).
This ramp was too steep
Outside the hall was a small test drive for electric bicycles and electric scooters. A careful evaluation of the photo showed 12,5% slope.
Attention! New test!
German electric motorcycle Elmoto HR-2
The older model of the Elmoto has 2 electric engines, one in the front wheel, on in the rear wheel. A start on 12.5& slope is with 80 kg ( I with equipment ) not possible.
Elmoto electric motorcycle from Germany
I try it later with the newer model, only a bigger wheel hug engine rear, to start on 12.5% slope. It had been even more legwork necessary than at the older model.
Compare Elmoto HR-2 with other electric scooters
The failure to start on 12.5% slope with only 80 kg burden at a 4000.-EUR product from a country once advertising with ''German value work'' is staggering.
Attention! New test!
Elmoto HR2 in hilly Stuttgart
Much surprised was the vendor about my fair report. It will not be possible to reconstruct what was with the 2 vehicles on the fair.
Hydrogen scooter for disabled
Really unbelievable performance data has this hydrogen scooter. 15 km/h top speed and 25 km range with only 2 hydrogen tanks.
Why simple when it can be done complicate?
Below the cargo platform for 4 Euro pallets: 2 hydrogen pressure tnaks (only 1 in the photo) left a battery, right capacitors, behind the fuel cell.
Hydrogen pressure tank EcoCarrier HY3
The pressure tank has 43kg, is for 350 bar and has 73 litres volume. It can be filled 20 years 5000 times (EIHP) or 15000 times (ISO)
Supercaps in the EcoCarrier Hy3 mit Triple Hybrid
Hydrogen technology simple explained. Why supercaps for an only 15 kW engine? Because the batteries are to small. Why are the batteries to small?
Daimler and Jaguar soon electric
Most of our salesmanagement drives Daimler and Jaguar soon with our own Electric Motor. A vendor to change fossil cars to electric cars?
Engine a little bit to big
The 259 kW electric engine seems on the first view to be not jet optimized for the use in a car. Sorry, only a gag on the fair booth.
